Acer Launches New Works With Chromebook-Certified Dock

Acer Middle East has expanded its range of Works With Chromebook-certified accessories with the Acer USB Type-C Dock D501, a new device that simplifies the process of connecting multiple displays or peripherals to a Chromebook. The dock has undergone significant testing and has been verified as meeting Chromebook’s compatibility standards to assure users that it will work seamlessly with their Chrome OS devices.

Maximize Utility

Laptop computers offer convenience and portability, especially now as the remote working model continues to be embraced by corporations. However, some jobs require more screen real estate, and sometimes it’s more comfortable to use a mouse than a trackpad. Peripherals offer working professionals more flexibility to create a setup that suits them, and many take advantage of this with an external monitor—or two—a keyboard and mouse, perhaps a USB stick or external hard drive for backing up data, and more. A docking station allows all of these things to be connected by plugging in a single USB Type-C connector, keeping desks clean, and reducing the number of steps required to get up and running come Monday morning.

Acer USB Type-C Dock D501

The Acer USB Type-C Dock D501 (ADK020) simplifies the process of connecting a Chrome OS Device to up to three extended displays[1], [2] via DisplayPort and HDMI ports, making it an excellent choice for users who work with large amounts of information and need more screen real estate than a single device allows. From there, six USB ports (4x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A and 2x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A) offer the flexibility to connect any additional peripherals necessary for a given job.  It also supports USB-C Power Delivery to charge devices via a USB-C connection and includes a dedicated Gigabit Ethernet port for wired networking.
